pressures have already been obtained for these points, and it only
remains to define their volumetric position. To do this take all
the points from 5 to 6 on the larger semi-circle, and transfer them
to the left side of the circle; thus B 6 is changed to B j. Pro-
jecting these downwards we only have to set up the heights
previously found, to complete the L. P. curve from P5 to P6.
The further expansion from P6 to PK is only in L. P. cylinder and
receiver. Therefore,

or we have arrived at the residual pressure assumed at first.

L. P. before half stroke. Referring to Fig. 659, and taking the
following data :

Then, while L. P. crank moves from 4 to 5 on the large circle,
